This is Cruz. We adopted him from a rescue group here in SoCal. My husband completed his name to Cruz Alejandro de la Playa. Adorable.

I use these baskets for picking vegetables and set them inside temporarily before storing them for the winter.
But the kitties found them irresistible and repurposed them as sleeping beds. So much for cleaning up. They love their new beds, so there they will stay.
Warm fire - warm belly
Getting ready for the cooler weather
Rest in Peace
Our beloved Cooper was the sweetest cat I have ever known (a true gentle giant).
He was very quiet except when talking to his human dad. We lost him way too soon due to heart problems. He is greatly missed each and every day.

Awenita (Nita for short) is a 5 and 1/2 year old bred in Maine, living in Albuquerque with mommy and sister Tori and moving back to New England in a few days. Both girls fancy napping in sinks whether they fit or not.

Bella is 8 years old. We got her from a rescue. She is a joy for the two of us, but she is terrified of anyone coming to the door - or the mowers - or kids in the street on bikes. You get the idea.
She is a big time hunter. She loves to bring us geckos and tiny frogs, then we have to catch the dumb things and let them go outside.
Everywhere I go, she is right beside me. One of the best cats I’ve had, first Maine Coon!

Patsy is 12. She is intelligent, beautiful, friendly, especially loves kids and is a good guard cat. She loves living in Sarasota with her devoted people.
Patsy is stunning! :)

Jack is my Maine Coon that was born in Maine. He's quite a character and we love him to pieces. He's about two and a half years old.
He is beautiful. Looks a lot like our Cooper. ❤️

O’Malley “forgot” he is not allowed on the tables! This naughty boy is my favorite.
So handsome & regal in presence!
Stan is six years old and the total boss of our two golden retrievers. I am convinced that he believes that he is a Golden. He is also the laziest at that we have ever lived with but is a total joy to us.
Quincy is 5 and Franklin is 6 months. They are full Maine Coons and share their dad.

This is my beautiful boy Calvin. He is 10 years old and was a rescue. He is super affectionate, chatty, and follows me everywhere. Absolute love of my life 😻
What a handsome boy. He seems like a real character

Shandy-Fluff is my fluffy Coonie who is eleven and a half years old.
She’s been a loving family member since she was 10 weeks old and was joined by Ginge-Mate who is ginger and white short hair 😻🐈
Shandy-Fluff is definitely in charge at home and purrrs and chirrups

My human mom rescued me at the young age of 6 months old. I was wandering the streets of a small town and I happen to go down her driveway.
I was really hungry, she took me in and I have been here ever since. I don't go outside because I know how dangerous it is, but that's fine I have a large screened in porch that I roamed around on.
I also watch all the birds eating out of the feeders, and yes my mom takes care of them also.
I'm so lucky too have such a good life, my mom takes really good care of me. I am 15 yrs old now and can't do the things I use to do, but that's ok.
I like laying around and being pampered, spoiled & loved. Its just me & mom, but sometimes others show up and I'm not a fan. I'm very happy here and hope to have many more years.

We had a feral cats behind our house when we moved into our new home in Rehoboth Beach Delaware.
We did TNR on about 10 cats. Then we caught Mopsy. It was February and he was a tiny little kitten so we decided to keep him.
At first he was afraid of everything and hid behind the toilet for two months. Now he runs the house!
He makes us laugh and smile every day and we can’t imagine our lives without him!
This is Merlin ~ 7 years old and eats more than he should.
One of my Favs
by: Terry L
Merlin is no doubt a big and handsome boy! This is one of my favorite photos of him.
That is one handsome dude, Mollie wants a poster size of Merlin for her wall, she’s smitten with Merlin!!😻if he is available for dating site have my own transportation
Murphy is a 10 year old Maine Coon mix, who enjoys hanging out and being model occasionally.
Omg, looks just like our Mopsy!

Mungo surveying his domain
Mungo, our handsome guy is 14!
We adopted him when he was 3 and he's been ruling the family since he settled in.
Kids, grandkids & dogs, Mungo lets them all know just who is in charge!
Kitty was adopted through a shelter sponsored by Pet Smart.
She is 11 years old this September and has never lost her kittenish playfulness. Kitty always wants to be near her humans.
She goes out for a daily walk on her harness and leash. Most recently we were out in the yard together and she chased after a chipmunk which landed her behind the shrubs.
At the moment she was in the shrubs still on her harness a fox came out of the woods. I said Kitty we have to go.....and when I tried to get her to come along she defiantly backed out of her harness because of course she wanted to play and hunt.
She then started heading in the direction of the fox looking at us from the back of the yard and I yelled STOP!!! She crouched down on the grass and I picked her up quickly and headed for the house.
Of course, she wrangled me like she was an alligator. She's 12 lbs, so I had to hold on to her tightly for dear life.
Thank goodness nothing bad happened but the timing of her getting out of her harness and then the fox appearing could not have been more in sync.
She now has gone out but as soon as she goes out and I say wait for me - she gets spooked starts meowing loudly with fright and heads back to the door to get in the house.
Hopefully when the snow flies she will venture out and not get so scared because she loves to play in the snow and make kitty snow cones with her paws which she licks off her paws!
I believe Jackson is a mix/Maine Coon. He has many traits for sure. The only thing is, he's so tiny! Barely weighs 8.5 pounds. I am not sure of his parents because I rescued him.
He is very shy but loves his fur-Mom. Playing in water and chatting at the birds are his favorite past times. He's something special!

My name is Miggy. My Mom named me after her favorite Detroit Tiger! But I'm ok with it because I'm as tough as a tiger.
I'm 4 years old now and was found at 6 weeks with my 2 brothers. They couldn't find my feline mom so we were taken in and nursed and cared for so great that I'm a happy 13 lbs.
I'm not a big cuddler but am always in the same room with Mom and Dad.
I love my pool deck to get fresh air but I'm not a fan of summer weather in Florida. I love October and know that my season is coming!
Please enjoy my photo shoot pictures. Thanks for checking me out.

Sterling is six and managed to convince my husband and me to adopt him along with the pair of buff colored kittens we had planned for.
He sat down in my lap and that was that. Now we joke that he thinks he can do as he pleases because he blessed us with his presence when so many others had inquired about him.
Not fond of being on his own for long periods of time, he can generally be found wherever we are and he’s quick to sit down on my cell phone, sewing or computer because he is the only approved laptop device.
We just love him to pieces, especially when he plunks himself down between us on the couch, rolls over on his back and drops off to sleep.
Sterling, we imagine, always reminds his siblings that he should always go first at dinner and treat time because he’s six days older.
Telulah waits for her brother Bertie to do all the tricks, then she sits in front of him for treats.
She is so fluffy and sweet but is the boss. She sleeps most of the day and goes into the garden early evening.
She never goes out of the garden and comes in around 8pm for a drink and bed upstairs. She loves her brother and he is so lovely with her. She likes to bathe under a running tap or in the pond.
I’m so cute
What a beauty
With his sister who is a ball of fluff
My beautiful tail
Bertie is a Maine Coon mix. He is adorable and clever.
He sits, gives his paw then chooses what he wants by tapping the box or packet. He takes biscuits from my hand like a dog, one at a time.
He loves the tap on in the bath to drink. He will walk with me if he thinks I am not so well, waits for me and walks back with me.

We adopted Morti nearly ten years ago. She is a sweet and loyal companion.
Her favorite activities include sitting on our laps, playing with toys, carrying loofahs in her mouth as deliveries to us, and enjoying her food (and trying to steal ours).
She enjoys bringing us presents like her loofahs (she is indoors so her choices are limited). As a kitten she loved playing fetch too.
When I work from home she will let me know when she wants to help me work by pawing my leg.
She is most often in the same room as us but sometimes prefers time out in one of her two favorite boxes. Morti is the best cat we have ever had and we are grateful to have found her!
by Susan S
She is the boss in our house and demands attention. She does sleep on our large greyhound's bed but gets off at night when he comes up.
by Jack Thompson
Dusty is the happiest, friendliest, most loving cat I've ever known.
I adopted Dusty about 9 years ago from the Humane Society. I went there to adopt a small kitten, but once I saw him I knew I had to meet him.
Once we met it was love at first sight for both of us. So he came home with me and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made.
He's the friendliest, most social and out going cat I've ever met. He loves everyone, animals and people alike. He walks on a leash, loves to go for car rides, and loves to go to the vets as they lavish attention on him. He's the love of my life!

Spooky was rescued from a hoarder. He had many issues and needed a lot of medical care. We got him at 11 weeks old in 2014 he is healthy now and of course spoiled. He loves snow and spying on the birds through the fence.
Dallas is eight years old, 23 pounds and not fat, just muscular. Loves her treats, likes sleeping on Daddy's shoes and telling Mommy and Daddy when it's time for bed. The two other things she favors:
Dallas likes to be brushed several times a day and sitting in her theater chair in Daddy's (and her) cave. Dallas is talkative and very lovable also.
Hi Jan, your picture(s) didn't come through. This happens sometimes when they are large files. There's more into on uploading photos here, or email me and we'll get it sorted out. Thanks for sharing!
